Redwood City, CA and Boston, MA – February 9, 2017 – Box (NYSE: BOX) and Mendix today announced a partnership that brings together Box’s leading enterprise content platform with Mendix’s low-code, rapid application development platform. The two companies are providing a fast, easy way to build and deploy custom web and mobile apps that operationalize Box content and make it available in any business process on any device.
